This month we are showcasing one of our Gleann Elagh house types, the ‘Grianán,’ which is located on the Upper Galliagh Road in Derry’s cityside.

The ‘Grianán’ house type at Gleann Elagh.

Named after one of Donegal’s most prestigious forts, Grianán of Aileach, the 4 bedroom house has some ‘fort’ qualities of its own, as modern construction techniques give a robust build quality. 

Fortunately, unlike An Grianán fort, Braidwater’s homes offer excellent insulation and high energy efficiency!!!

Designed for the modern family, our house of the month has spacious open living areas, four good sized bedrooms, landscaped garden space, tarmac driveway and all the trimmings a turnkey property brings you.

Darren Farnan, marketing manager of Braidwater stated:

‘’Some might say we’re using creative licence when we state ‘great views of the Sperrins and the Donegal Hills,’ where An Grianán fort is located, but go and have a look yourself and you’ll see how secluded a development it is and how easy it is to get the views.

‘’The Grianán’ house type is unique in that there are only 5 of them within the Gleann Elagh development and offer the perfect house style for the modern professional couple or young growing family.’’
